Scale Video Production

Modern marketing strategies require an increasing amount of video content, such as social media videos, video ads, and personalized videos. So you might be asking yourself, "How can I efficiently scale up video production without overspending or taking too much time?" The answer is video automation!

On this page, we'll explore 3 video automation methods to create video content at scale, with and without coding:

How to Create Video Content At Scale?

Video automation simplifies the process of creating video content on a large scale by using templates and dynamic data. With just one design, you can generate countless unique videos by inserting data-driven elements like text, images, video clips, colors, and more. Let's delve into three automation methods for scaling video production: using a bulk generation spreadsheet, via no-code tools like Zapier, or through an API.

Start with a video template

To begin, you need to create a template that will serve as the blueprint for all the videos. This template should include placeholder elements that can be substituted with dynamic content such as text and media.

You can choose from many ready-made templates, but you can also create your own designs using the online template editor. The editor provides all the tools you need to create designs for various purposes, according to the ideas you have in mind.

Choose your automation method

Once you have your template in place, pick one of the following three automation methods that work best for you:

  • The easiest and most accessible way is to use a bulk generation spreadsheet. This approach lets you create videos on a large scale by importing data from various sources such as product catalogs, CRM tools, or CSV files. To get started, take a look at this 7-minute tutorial.
  • If you want to establish a fully automated workflow that doesn't require any technical skills, a no-code tool like Zapier is a great option for you. By connecting over 5000+ apps, you can create custom workflows to produce videos at scale. For instance, you can generate videos whenever new data is added to your Google Sheets or CRM tool, which you can then share on social media, via email, and more. Here's a 8-minute tutorial to get you started.
  • Alternatively, you can programmatically generate videos on a large scale using code. If you or someone on your team is a developer, you can integrate with the REST API using programming languages like Node.js, PHP, Ruby, or Python. Check out this guide to get started.

It doesn't matter which automation method you choose, you can scale video production to suit your specific needs. It's now easier than ever to efficiently produce large volumes of video content for your own marketing campaigns or those of your clients, whether you need social media content, advertising material, personalized videos, or anything else.

If you're unsure which method to choose, we recommend starting with bulk generation. If you need more automation, then decide whether you'll use a no-code or code-based approach.
